    I'm working with Eclipse SDK  Version: 3.6.1Build id: M20100909-0800 on Ubuntu 8.04 with Epic 0.6.37 with perl v5.8.8 built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi and I love it

    I've just written a module complete with POD  - mostly to establish documentation for the functions I've written. I compiled and installed it using perl Makefile.PL, make, make test & make install. The module works just fine in that I can call the functions I want  … except for one crucial aspect: I have no access to my POD documentation in Eclipse/EPIC/Perldoc window. Since having such documentation was the whole point of creating the module, this is … a trifle annoying (-; lol

    Could someone please point me in the right direction? How can I get EPIC to look at the pod files written for my module (they're written into /usr/local/man/man3/)

    Thank you
